CBT is the bare minimum you need to legally ride a motorcycle or scooter on the road. This is a one‐day course designed to you the basic skills to keep you safe on the road. 

You need no previous motorcycle or scooter experience and most people complete their training day. However if you are nervous or have any concerns just call me and we can arrange one‐2‐one training, if that is what you prefer.

Basic riding in a secure area ( no traffic, no parked cars, no people ‐ just you, me and maybe one other student)

Introduction to the bike controls and a chat about motorcycle/ scooter maintenence

Chat about safety helmets and suitable motorbike clothing

Highway code talk along with other theory motorbike/ scooter information.

Road ride ‐ first around very quiet roads so you can gain confidence, then further afield as and when you feel confident. This is where all your training comes together and you will feel more and more confident as the ride progresses.

At the end of the course you receive your CBT certificate which is valid for two years, during which you can ride by yourself with ‘L’ plates. Should you wish to progress further and take your test you will need to show your CBT certificate.
CBT COURSE ‐ £130 includes:
bike or scooter, insurance, loan of helmet gloves etc., and a great day out!

WHAT TO BRING

You will need bring your driving licence and wear suitable clothing ‐ nothing fancy, but something to keep you warm and dry. Great if you can bring your own helmet and gloves but I can lend you them if necessary. I normally stop for coffee and a chat half‐way on our ride out, so you might want to bring a drink, sandwich or some cash?

THE BIKES and radios

If you choose a geared bike you will ride a Honda CBF 125 ‐ a lovely bike with a smooth clutch and excellent on which to learn gears. 
If you choose a scooter it will be a Yamaha Cygnus 125 or a Honda Vision 110. Both these scooters are excellent to learn on and have proved to be very relable. (IMAGES)
Whilst out on the road you will carry a Kenwood radio on a dedicated frequency ‐ I have invested in quality radios and the dedicated channel means you hear clear instructions without any interference, allowing you to concentrate on the road ahead.
